in which thoreau never disappoints

“Is a democracy, such as we know it, the last improvement possible in
government? Is it not possible to take a step further towards
recognizing and organizing the rights of man? There will never be a
really free and enlightened State until the State comes to recognize
the individual as a higher and independent power, from which all its
own power and authority are derived, and treats him accordingly.”
Henry David Thoreau
